So I was without power for many hours today. This freaked me out as I had just brought home 6 bazillion dollars worth of Christmas groceries and so I very promptly called BC Hydro. The woman I spoke with on the phone was helpful & informed me that no one else appeared to have an outage and asked if I had re-set the breakers? Of course I had, so I patiently waited for something miraculous. Less than an hour later “Mike” called to ask a few questions seeing as my meter was registering fine on his end………. So fast forward two hours and there is beer in the snowbank and a hydro truck in front of my house. I asked him if he’d like hot tea or coffee considering the fact that he’d be spending a half hour on the pole and it’s eleventeen billion degrees below zero. It took all of an hour after he got here and I clearly now have POWER.
So where is the ASSHOLE in this scenario? It stems from hydro guys comment when he arrived. Noting the trout that was grotesquely warming throughout the afternoon, the first words out of my mouth were “Holy Hell am I glad to see YOU!” He responded with “Wow, the last place that I went they yelled and screamed at me.
So……. Dear Asshole, Don’t shoot the fucking messenger. Do you really think that the hydro guy snuck into your yard and sabotaged your power line? You are the same jackass that yells at your server because your steak isn’t how you ordered, or bitches at the meter maid person for the ticket that you got even though YOU ARE THE ASSHAT THAT PARKED IN THE LOADING ZONE. This dear asshole is to all you fuckers that yell at people who have done nothing to you and are in fact probably there to rectify a problem.
Let them do their fucking jobs and if it wouldn’t kill you, say thank you. Fucking fucktards!
